    • at timestamp 8:44 of their headline (GL) they showed skill tree for braver:
      there's a skill called "Katana Guard Counter" (KGC for short) which in it's turn has 2 sub-skills :
      – KGC Advance (skill description: Adds a shockwave to KGC) (time stamp: 8:47)
      – Fearless Attitude
      Unfortunately they didn't move cursor on KGC or Fearless attitude, so i can't provide you with their descriptions. But it's 100% safe to guess that KGC is our old friend Katana Counter (just no gear to accumulate and gain atk % it seems)

    • They give U quest for each of currently available class:
      – talk to class change npc as specific class
      – defeat 20 *mob type* in *area*
      – don't remember what is the 3rd requirement in those quests

      in cbt they had 6 npcs total, now they combined them into 3 (I think)
      making braver npc 4th one (which probably will include braver/bouncer/summoner eventually)

    • Game is already dying out with this pathetic updates.
      this is becoming a cash grab game at this point.

  1. Seriously, who was waiting for mining base to be ported to NGS? I The only one I could tolerate was mining base 4 because it was short. And only one run.

    • Honestly I used to like TD3, TD4 (Before successor classes) and EBQ II, because they were the longest tower defense EQs. As for TD on NGS, I feel like it's a desperate move to try to bring people back into the game.

    • SEGA planned for this TD long ago so it's not really a desperate move, just the usual them not giving a shit about crumbling game and releasing roadmap no content at planned snail pace. Seeing the preview, TD was probably the easiest thing for SEGA to make after gigani – use existing part of world, just make one tower model and slap respawns at intervals, UQ done!

  2. The only thing that catches my attention in these future "updates" (if they can even be called updates) is the red swimwear because it has "Angelina" vibes all over it.

    I wouldn't say it's much of a cashgrab as PSO2 was, afterall PSO2 had new scratches every 15 days, not that doing the same for NGS would be any different, NGS would be just as bad as it currently is

  3. I got the 90 day premium set within the dates mentioned and no Emilia – Praise stamp. If it's something they'll give out later I fail to see why we would have to wait for something so simple.

    • I don't think that campaign is active yet (even though the slide says it starts today). I'm not sure if they'll give a compensation for that, but you should wait until they actually appear in Campaign posts.
